Three Penobscot Bay island high school student-athletes competed in the state Class C track-and-field championship meet Saturday at McMann Field in Bath and one took a boat ride back to his home with a new title — state titlist.

Islesboro’s Gerard Scherr (high jump) and Jason Hatch (javelin) and North Haven’s Charlie Jones (3,200 meters) all qualified and competed in the state meet. Scherr returned home with a state championship in his event.

Some athletes from the state meet, who qualified, can compete in the New England championships on Saturday, June 11 at Burlington High School in Burlington, Vt. Scherr has earned that opportunity.

The qualifiers from Maine will be based on the performances at the three state meets. All seven scorers from each of the state meets will create the pool to fill the field. The state champions from each of the three classes and the next three best performances for each event will qualify for the New England meet. If one or more of the six qualifiers decides not to compete, then the field will be filled with the next best performance from the state meets.
